A GENEROUS donation to the Stapenhill Scouts has allowed them to continue their weekly activities.

The money was desperately needed to maintain their scout hut which was suffering from various problems including the building’s plumbing.

Councillor Bernard Peters, who represents Brizlincote for East Staffordshire Borough Council, happily handed the cheque for £188 to the scouts in February, and the work has now been completed.

Councillor Peters said: “It’s a wonderful organisation that offers a great service to boys and girls.

“I was more than happy to give them the money to maintain their scout hut and i know the money was gratefully received.

“I hope i can be of further assistance to them as the years go on.”
